American Martyrs with an Island Flair

Another of our new construction listings, this brand new home in the American  Martyrs area was conceived by noted architects Pritzkat & Johnson and constructed by premiere builders Titan and Co.  The home features 6 bedrooms (including two master suites) plus an office, 7 baths (plus an outdoor shower) and 4475 sqft of luxury living space.

The inspiration for the home is the architecture of the British West Indies.  Here, that inspiration is reflected in the open reverse floor plan, the 9″wide distressed oak plank flooring, the louvered doors and railings, the mahogany tongue & groove ceiling detail in the common living areas and the panoramic city, mountain and ocean views which can be enjoyed from an abundance of viewing decks (one of which includes a fireplace) as well as virtually the entire top floor.  Two of the decks have door systems that open almost their entire length, allowing for a superior indoor-outdoor living feel.

In addition, there is a gourmet ki716 12th - Upper Back Decktchen with pass-through to the outdoor dining area on the back deck as well as a butler’s pantry that connects to the formal interior dining area.  There is a 3-stop elevator, a 3-car garage and multi-zone heating and A/C.

For more information, click on the address – 716 12th Street, Manhattan Beach.  Or just stop by our open house on Sunday from 2-4 pm.

Offered at $4,799,000.
